Frequently Asked Questions

Where is the conference held? The conference will be held at the Sturbridge Host and Hotel Conference Center in Sturbridge, MA! Address: 366 Main Street, Sturbridge, Massachusetts 01566

Where can I stay? We encourage you to stay at the Sturbridge Host. We have a negotiated rate with them. Did you know your stay at the host supports the Women of Influence cost for the conference? The more that stay at the host, the lower our cost for the conference! This enables us to offer you more conference experience. We are working with the host to provide you an even better experience for 2017.

How do I reserve my stay at the Host? You can reserve one room or more. The host will allow you to create room blocks for your group. If you do not fill the room block, however, you must release this room block by September 15. This will enable others to have an opportunity to take those rooms. Host Phone #: 508-347-7393; Website:

Can I bring my children with me? Women of Influence conference is for YOU to get away, relax, and renew your soul and spirit. For this reason, we encourage you to leave the kiddo’s with family or friends. However, if there are extenuating circumstances or you are nursing, we welcome you to bring them.

Are there refunds available if I am unable to attend? Due to the immediate incurred cost of registration and preparation of your arrival at conference, we do not offer refunds (outside of emergency/crisis events). However, we can transfer the registration to another woman who can attend.

What is the meet and greet with Meredith? This is a limited entry/seating event with additional cost to entry. This will give attendees the opportunity to personally meet Meredith, and enjoy questions and answers about Meredith and her ministry.
